    Some of my pour art comes out like a Christmas tree or a NZ Silver Fern

    Re: Christmas trees on coffee

    Funny this should be bumped - had one smart alec ask me tonight if I could put a christmas tree on top. I didnt think he was serious but then he called my creativity and artistic ability into question so I made an attempt at etching one, with some success (recognisable shape, but no finesse to it).

    Spent the rest of the night contemplating the way you might actually pour it. Didnt even manage to come close. *Might try a couple tomorrow morning.

    Re: Christmas trees on coffee

    Idea: Same pattern as rosetta with less flow-force for initial submerged leaves so their curvature is less by the time they rise? Half-size rosetta leaving room for etched star on top?

    My grinders stuffed tonight (with vietnamese coffee... dont ask) requiring complete dismantling so cant play. Its just not the same playing around with hot chocolate rosettas.

    Well here is! the draft of the photo for our Christmas cards. We now need to work on the final card and if your lucky (and I find the time I will upload the final card (of which we then mas produce) for you all to see.
    We go through this every year. Hand making about 50 cards and we have been a little slow off the mark this year. only got about a week to finish them all.
    Forgive my rambling I am not long out of bed after a night shift.

    Will have to check with the copywriter (AKA wife) and may have to put a little text on it for recognition.

    Where did you get the baubles from? Are they edible? Would be a good idea for some special customers at the cafe...
